Podcast: Forum Defends Burgum Travel

I had Fargo Forum editor Matt Von Pinnon on my radio show today to discuss their Sunday editorial defending Governor Doug Burgum’s travel.

“We dont want our governor to sit in Bismarck and not leave his office,” the editorial concluded. “The job of the governor requires him to be around the state and Burgum has done that.”

I agree with that, but I’m also not sure we have the full story as yet. Von Pinnon conceded that the report on gubernatorial travel from state Auditor Josh Gallion isn’t out just yet. Perhaps we should reserve judgment until then.

Here’s the full audio of today’s show. If you want the audio delivered to your devices daily, get the podcast.
